“Past Present, Below” is the accumulation of 2 years of experimentation, bringing together a vast array of instrumentation (drums, guitar, piano, organ, virbraphone, chinese gongs and harmonia) and field recordings (Australia, Kyoto temples, German rivers, Tasmanian forests). Hall ties these varied sources together with a unique blend of studio practices ranging from Max/MSP / Ableton Live processing, analog effects pedals and a unique process of replaying and re-recording compositions back into environments in which they originated. This album is Tom Hall’s most developed and beautiful work to date, exclusive to Overlap.
